The Damned 2 Nov 2014

Live: The Damned (and Motorhead)

Thank goodness we were able to take advantage of this gig, right behind where we live! I’ve never seen either bands before or do I ever recall going to the NIA (the soon to be revamped/renamed National Indoor Arena in Birmingham) so last Thursday held some firsts for me. I don’t know if I would have […]

Movie: Twenty Feet From Stardom

Movie: Twenty Feet From Stardom

“Meet the unsung heroes behind the greatest music of our time” The second of the films seen on-board Virgin Atlantic that I’d missed in the cinema, Twenty Feet From Stardom is a documentary charting the many voices I have heard in pop music over the decades. The story has been all told before, but I still […]

Music Monday: The Last Party

Music Monday: The Last Party

I’m bemused and delighted when unsigned bands email to introduce themselves. It sure saves me the trouble of getting to every gig early to see all three or four bands (although I’ll do that anyway!). Wouldn’t it be great though if we heard them in clothes shops, coffee houses and most crucially the radio? I […]

Music Monday: V is for Luther Vandross

Music Monday: V is for Luther Vandross

I’ve been through the alphabet twice now, this time ending with the sublime talent that was Luther Vandross. Inspiration to many, loved by all. So many to choose from: 1. Never Too Much – an all time classic 2. Give Me The Reason  3. Stop to Love 4. So Amazing 5. Dance with My Father […]

Music Monday – N is for New Order

Music Monday – N is for New Order

A simple choice for me this week: 1. World in Motion – the best footie song ever recorded 2. Thieves Like Us 3. Temptation 4. Blue Monday – huge in my school days as the first single that we knew of only released as 12″. We all had to go and buy 12″ from then on. […]

Music Monday: M is for Manic Street Preachers

Music Monday: M is for Manic Street Preachers

It’s back to #MusicMonday after the break for holidays and what a classic band to come back with. They’ve produced so many fine tunes over the years so this list could change as early as tomorrow: 1 Motorcycle Emptiness – this will probably stay number one though 2 A Design For Life 3 If You […]

Music Monday: L if for Lightning Seeds

Music Monday: L if for Lightning Seeds

By the time ‘L’ rolls around again, I vow to know a lot more of Gordon Lightfoot’s work than the 2 tracks I adore. For now, the poptastic Lightning Seeds: 1. Sense – love love love this track! Written with Terry Hall who seems to pop up in the unlikliest of song writing credits. 2. […]

Music Monday: K is for The Kinks

Music Monday: K is for The Kinks

I’m late into appreciating the Kinks and the new respect is entirely due to ex-BF who regards Ray Davies as his hero. He likes the 1970’s output but these are mine: You Really Got Me Lola The Village Green Preservation Society All Day and All of the Night Waterloo Sunset – the ultimate English song, […]
